Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore, Christopher Robin, Kana, Roo, Rabbit, Owl, Tigger, Piglet, Gopher & Heffalump
It is Christmas and the setting of Christopher Robin’s childhood imagination. The Hundred Acre Wood, is covered in crisp, white snow. At a time like this you’d think that all would be well as the friends of the young boy excitedly prepare for the holidays, but not for Eeyore. Not only does he continue to mope under his own imaginary dark cloud, as he always does, but this time he really has something to mope about; he’s lost his tail.
Also known as Pooh Bear, Pooh, or Silly Ol’ Bear. He’s undoubtedly the world’s most loved and revered bear. He’s not the smartest of bears and, does a lot of silly things. His love for honey (“hunny“) is endless.
Is a donkey and for some, he is their favorite Pooh character amongst all the others. He is a blue-gray donkey. His appearance is highlighted by a small light pink bow on his tail. He is an intelligent animal but tends to keep to himself. Eeyore is an extremely gloomy donkey and has a very bad habit of losing his tail! Mostly, he tends to depend on his friends to find his lost tail for him and thereafter Christopher Robin fixes his tail using a drawing pin. What he simply adores is that his friends remember him on his birthday and celebrates it with him. He often says “Thanks for noticin’ me” and “Oh, well”.
Is a very Bouncy Animal and resembles a tiger. He is always in an electrifying & exuberant mood and loves to bounce, bounce and bounce. His character is easily recognizable by the black & orange stripes, a springy tail, and a long chin, beady eyes which all mix well into his bouncy and fun loving personality. He is a bouncy, pouncy, flouncy and a trouncy creature that is always looking to make the most out of what life has to offer. The most wonderful thing about Tiggers is that “I’m the only one!” Tigger likes to bounce a lot, “cause that is what Tiggers do best.” His favorite food is the extract of malt but is known to be an extremely fussy eater.
Is a very brave animal as supposed to his diminutive size and frame of a timid pink pig. His original address in the 100 Acre Wood was the Beech Tree, south of Pooh’s house, 100 Acre Wood Southwest. But from the time Owl moved into his house, Piglet has started living with his best friend Winnie the Pooh. What he loves doing best is going on adventures with Pooh, he is quite fond of bright colors and especially balloons, and he even likes blowing dandelions. Haycorns are his favorite food. Every Tuesday Piglet spends his day at Christopher Robin’s house. The first thing that Piglet utters when he gets up in the morning is “I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?”
Is pushy and takes his own decisions, is able to spell better compared to all the other animals. He is quite certain about the important things in his life. What he likes doing most is organizing a plan and to lead group events, even if nothing gets done. He is unhappy if anyone disturbs or interrupts him while he is engaged in any kind of activity, he doesn’t like being bounced either. He relishes gardening and his favorite food is the carrot and other vegetables, he makes it a point to avoid Pooh during lunch time.
Is the sole female character in Winnie-the-Pooh. She is the mother of a young Joey (baby kangaroo) named Roo. Kanga carries her family in her pocket and is the fastest amongst all animals in the forest. She takes utmost care of Roo and shall often warn Roo of possible dangers involved in the activities that Roo undertakes. She often says “Now now Roo, you mustn’t do that dear,” to which Roo mostly replies “But moma!” Kanga & Roo live in the Northern section of the 100 Acre Wood. Every Tuesday Kanga goes to Pooh’s house and tries to teach him how to jump. Roo is the youngest member of the 100 Acre Wood, he loves milk and most other eateries except for the extract of malt. He really likes the game ‘Poohsticks’ and likes playing with Tigger too.
Is a boy for whom Winnie-the-Pooh was originally written. He is the master of the 100 Acre Woods. Christopher Robin’s address in the forest is – Top of the Forest (High Ground), 100 Acre Wood East. He is everyone’s best friend and mostly indulges in activities to help his friends to get them out of tricky situations, most of the times it’s the silly old Pooh bear that he helps. He will help Pooh collect honey, he will rescue Roo & Tigger when they are stuck in high trees in the forest and shall nail Eeyore’s tail. His favorite food is probably Birthday cake and one of his favorite things to do is hosting birthday and hero parties. But what he likes doing best is Nothing; “It means just going along, listening to all the thing’s you can’t hear, and not bothering”.
Is the wisest amongst all the animals living in the 100 Acre Wood. Owl, like Rabbit, wasn’t an original toy belonging to Christopher Robin Milne. Along with Rabbit he is considered to be an animal with brains. His intelligence is often called upon to aid a certain bear of very little brain. He is always forthcoming in offering his advice, opinions, and anecdotes irrespective of others wanting it. He also loves telling stories related to his relatives. His original residence is called The Chestnuts but when a storm blows away his house and thereafter he makes Piglet’s residence his new residence. His residence has amenities like a pull- bell and a door knocker. Owl is capable of writing and some illustrations show him holding a pen in his talons.
His full name is Samuel J. Gopher. Gopher is a Bricklayer, Builder, Excavation and Demolition Expert. His address is perhaps more apt when describes as all over the 100 Acre Woods as he lives under tunnels he creates. What he likes doing most is working on projects that involve building tunnels or projects which could be used by the other members in the forest.
Is an animal that the residents of the 100 Acre Wood fear. His color is lavender and a trunk similar to what an elephant has. Heffalump lives in the 100 Acre Wood but his address is not known as he is rarely seen. His favorite food is honey which is also Pooh’s favorite food.
